    Sounds just like when the DX got the leaked GB and some people would allow an official OTA to push through on top of the leaked GB and it would brick their phone. You'll need to find the Droid Eris section and a SBF file, if there is one. But, to start it all off, it's best to just rummage through the Droid Eris section and find out what you can. From the details, you listed for the Droid Eris, the HBoot would be the tool to rooting it. So, I would check out that forum section and see what they've got to offer to get it back in order.

    Edit: Make sure you know the exact model number and all so you don't grab the wrong SBF or wrong tools for it and cause more problems to it.

    Using the SDK to adb push and pull files is easy as heck. The only hard part is making sure your java path is set up properly or the SDK will be rendered useless and java will continue to say path not found.

    I wrote up a really nice tutorial awhile back that explains how to set it up. You can use partial of my tutorial to set it up and ignore the rest since it applies to setting up emulators and how to adb push and pull on emulators.

    If you're interested in that then I'll post the link here for you to take a look.

    Haha, well, it's like it says in my tutorial... I had to teach myself this stuff because asking questions and receiving no response to help me pretty much pushed me to start doing things on my own and THEN in return start making tutorials to help others in the same footsteps as me.

    I am actually, and currently, getting a degree in computer programming/network technician and then moving onto software designing and possibly something else related.

    No problem at all! Glad to keep on assisting others.
